St. Partick's Church is located in Blake Avenue, near the railway bridge. The architect, chosen by the donor Lavinia C. Keene, being A.E. Wiseman of Chelmsford. The exterior has been compared to a tube station and the interior to a cinema. The main delight must be the painted apse ceiling. A delightful, most lively mosaic - recently completed as part of a youth project beautifully depicts the history of Barking.
